I was just there yesterday for industry preview.  Lots and lots to  
see.  The real show stopper to me (aside from the curvaceous models  
at the Lamborghini stand) is the R8 W12 turbo diesel.  Holy Sh*t!!!   
I'll try and post pics today.  Just gorgeous.  The pics from the web   
just don't do it justice.  Maybe mine will ;-).  The body finish is  
more like steel that's been bead-blasted with the side blades  
appearing to be polished stainless steel.  Makes me really want to  
play the lottery!
